Citizens of Grand Kru County, Southeast Liberia are appealing to the Management of the state-owned Liberia Broadcasting System to extend its signals to the county. They said the absence of LBS’s signals in the county has kept them in darkness, without access to information about government’s policies and development programs.
They told our stringer in the county that the situation has completely isolated them from happenings in government and the rest of the country. The legal counsel of the Ministry of Justice in Grand Kru, Attorney Adolphus Brown described the situation as very frustrating and boring, noting that officials in the county have no access to information coming out of Monrovia due to lack of broadcast signals.
Attorney Brown said if LBS signals cover the entire country, more persons would be willing to take up assignment in rural Liberia and citizens will be informed about unfolding developments in government and in the counties; John Bropleh reports
